Journey Into Mystery #92 - Cover

Another Thor cover from before Kirby took over the interiors for the series full-time. I always like the way Kirby poses Loki, always very confident and sinister.

The Kirby Checklist credits this one to George Roussos, but I'm not sure about that one. I'm going to have to compare it to some other Roussos from the period.

That's an Ayers ink job if I've ever seen one. He's the most easily identifiable inker Kirby's ever had.

Thor looks like he's inked by Ayers but I'm pretty sure that Loki's face is Roussos.Much starker lines. Could be a retouch job like all of those Romita did later on though.

I agree that this is Ayers inking, although there does seem to be some alterations, but they appear to be on Loki's hands and torso, and they could be by Kirby himself.
